Jamie Moyer: Maybe he'll reach 300 wins when he's 51

Jamie Moyer is 46 years old and entered tonight with an ERA of about 6.00. Of course he went on the road and threw 7 shutout innings against the Marlins allowing only 1 hit. Tonight, he won his 255th game of his career, passing Jack Morris and Red Faber.

Now, within shouting distance (maybe not this year, but possible) are Bob Feller and Jim Palmer at 266 and 268. Amazing for a guy who was offered a coaching position in the Cubs minor league system after they released him, in 1992(!).
